I would like to introduce you to a set of self tapping sheet metal screws. These are extremely easy to install by using a #2 Phillips head driver and a #3 Phillips head screwdriver. Once you have the screw in it’s place, it won’t go anywhere unless you have a screwdriver.
This is the first time I’ve used a screw for a sheet metal screw, so let me know if you need me to explain a few things that I’m trying to get out of the way so you understand. I’ll try to be as brief as possible without being boring. First, I’m not really a screwdriver person.
Screws are generally used for fastening things together (cars, doors, etc). This is why I prefer a 3 Phillips driver vs a 2 Phillips, because I don’t want to be constantly having to think of ways to get a screw out of a sheet metal piece.
Screws are a very small part of sheet metal work, so I would recommend getting them out as quickly as possible. Theres so many different ways to screw into sheet metal that I can easily lose half my day trying to figure out the right screw for a particular part.
But I like the idea of self tapping screws, because it eliminates having to think about the screw every time I need to remove something. I dont have to worry about screws being lost in my car, and I dont have to look at the screws I use for my tools anymore.
In case you were wondering, my dad owns an auto body shop, and it is a pain in the ass to get screws out of his workbench.
Self tapping screws are similar to those used in home remodeling. The idea is that when you drill a screw, you can do so only once, then you have to do it again. If that screw is not the correct size, you can do it again. Instead of having to look at the screw every time you need to remove something, you just drill it once and then you only have to pull the screw out once. If you can find the right screw, you can do it again.
Self tapping screws is the most popular type of screw made here in the US. The benefits of a self tapping screw are the same as they are for a regular screw. It’s faster, cheaper, and easier to put in and take out. A self tapping screw is what you call a “tapered” screw, meaning that the head is made to be removed without having to drill anything deeper than the tip.
You can get a free self tapping screw on our website. They come in two versions. One that makes a long drill hole, and the other one that only makes a short drill hole. I use the short version and have found that just drilling it once can be easy enough. You can also buy a Phillips head that has a built-in self tapping screw. It makes a long drill hole and does the same thing.
There’s a lot of self tapping screws, but this one is pretty simple. You drill the screw into the head of the screw, and then simply pull it out and it comes out almost as easily as the regular self tapping screw. The advantage of this screw is that it is self tapping and comes out quickly, but this is a good one.
